If it is a cable connection (eg Optus) you just hook up and you will be connected to browse. You will not be able to get email unless your ISP has webmail in which case you just log in there. Hope that helps :D

I have just been told the same applies if it is a wi-fi connection but not having done that I can't verify

try setting up your pppoe connection... ie go into thing settings and connect via pppope, you'll need his/her username and passwd. but yeah
